ICredentialProviderCredential::SetSelected method

Called when a credential is selected. Enables the implementer to set logon characteristics.

Syntax


HRESULT SetSelected(
  [out] BOOL *pbAutoLogon
);

Parameters

pbAutoLogon [out]

Type: BOOL*

When this method returns, contains TRUE if selection of the credential indicates that it should attempt to logon immediately and automatically, otherwise FALSE. For example, a credential provider that enumerates an account without a password may want to return this as true.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

Returning any value other than S_OK causes the Logon UI and Credential UI to behave as if no selection occurred.

In Windows 10, if a credential provider wants to automatically log the user on in a situation Windows does not think is appropriate, the system will display a sign in button as a speed bump. One example of this is when a user with an empty password locks the computer or signs out. In that scenario, Windows does not directly log the user back in.
